. the rest of that interview this week. it's quite extraordinary. that's all for us tonight. "a.c. 360" starts right now. >>> the explosions continue to rock this city that we have seen all throughout the day. we've also just this evening as we have throughout the day seen a number of rockets being fired from gaza city from the central area in gaza city toward israel. a number of those rockets have been intercepted. it's not clear how many may have gotten through this evening alone. there's a lot to tell you about today. most significantly a big strike on a building just several blocks from here that houses a number of media organizations, local media and also some foreign media organizations. it's a building that was struck on sunday and had largely been evacuated. but today the building was struck. again, the lower floors were struck again. one member of islamic jihad was said to be killed. that's confirmed by israeli and palestinian sources. a lot to tell you about. here's what the day looked like. >> reporter: day six of the battle between hamas and israeli defense forces. day six
minister met with the secretary of state hillary clinton. he thanked her for the u.s. funding of the system. when it comes to a cease-fire, as of now, it remains illusive and only talk. it's become a familiar sound. air raid sirens in jerusalem. iranian rocket fired by militant in gaza landed on the outskirt of the holy city. ironically, the rocket fell near a palestinian village. tonight, rocket launched from gaza landed 45 miles away in suburban tel aviv. the farthest ever to fall in an israeli city. militants on tuesday fired more than 100 rockets. the israeli military suffered the first fatality when a seasonal was hit by a mortar this afternoon. raising the israeli death toll to five. one of the rockets that pep traited the iron dome defense system hit a store in the city of ashdod and sheered off the side of the building, decimating the structure. there were no serious injuries. >> it's like rain. like it rains in new york state, just rain water, here it rains rockets. every day, every hour. rains tens of thousands of rockets in the city. it's unbelievable. >> another rocket pierced t
hours. really trying to put a u.s. stamp, footprint, if you will, on the negotiations. how much leverage does the u.s. have in actually making sure that the cease-fire is something that's going to hold? >> well the u.s. doesn't have much leverage over hamas because the u.s. doesn't deal with hamas. the u.s. government, previous governments, regards hamas as a terrorist organization. when secretary of state hillary clinton visits here in jerusalem later, then goes to ramallah to meet with mahmoud abbas tomorrow and then goes to cairo she's not going to meet with anyone from hamas. the u.s. does have leverage on egypt, given the economic and military assistance the u.s. provides to egypt and given the dire economic straits that the egyptians are in right now. so the u.s. has leverage on the egyptians and obviously the u.s. has very good relations with israel. so the u.s. is a key player in all of this. but as far as leverage on hamas, u.s. leverage is limited. >> secretary of state hillary clinton's arriving soon in jerusalem about three hours or so from now. she'll go to ramallah, then on
asia for a regional summit this opened the door to the first u.s. presidential visits to myanmar and cambodia. secretary of state hillary clinton was also there until just moments ago, when she departed for the middle east at the president's request. for more on that, political director and , chuck todd. >> reporter: it's fair to say the events in gaza have overshadowed what the president's been working on here in southeast asia. i can tell you this, last night cambodia time, the president was on the phone until 2:30 in the morning basically doing shuttle diplomacy first with egyptian president morsi and then netanyahu and then back on the phone with morsi. the reason there, obviously, talking to netanyahu getting a sense of what it would take to prevent him from doing the ground invasion into gaza. the talks with morsi are about, this is the egyptian leader, has the direct contacts with hamas. neither united states or israel has that. the decision to send secretary clinton i'm told by white house aides is neither an acknowledgment things are close neither do they feel things got

, thanks so much. >>> joining us from tel aviv is nbc news correspondent martin fletcher. from your perspective, what are israeli authorities saying about the potential of a cease-fire coming this hour? >> reporter: well, you know, the israelis have been saying all along, pouring cold water on to the reports which have come from arab sources that an agreement and a truce was going to be signed this evening. there was one radio report that said senior israeli officials said it would happen, but otherwise, there's been silence. the only thing that's come out from the israeli sources is that the deal is not wrapped up and that there is still a long way to go. very important issue. as ayman mentioned. i think the key is the sound bite from prime minister netanyahu. he's calling for a long-term solution through diplomatic means if possible. what he means if it isn't possible there's still the ground force invasion on the ground, it's still an option until that's a deal. there isn't yet a deal. it very close, it appears, but it appears it's not as close as the sources who are saying that

territory. they say they targeted the national islamic bank which they accuse hamas of using to pay its employees. an nbc analysis found israel has killed nearly 40 hamas militants over the last week, often using high precision drone strikes but the civilian toll has been high as well. thousands of people turned out for the funerals of four young children killed in an israeli air strike. meanwhile, israel's so-called iron dome missile defense has helped keep most missiles out of heavily populated areas. still some have made it through, like this rocket that hit a school. joining us now, nbc's eamon ayman in gaza. >> reporter: according to israeli military, more than 100 hit the gaza strip. this morning palestinian officials say the death toll from the past seven days has now reached 115 palestinians. nearly a third of them children. earlier this morning, four killed, two brothers and a father killed in an incident that pushed that death toll up to 115. all of this happening against a back drop of continuing violence. palestinian factions were still able to fire at least 50 rockets into
